    Made this for an individual that BEGGED me to take his commission, knowing that I do not accept commission work. Begged for weeks.... and I finally gave in. Paid his deposit, and when I emailed him to say the project was finished.... never responded. It has been 3 weeks and no response. I have seen him active on websites.

    Anyway, that being said.... here is my version of War For Cybertron MEGATRON with upgraded weaponry. His fusion canon now features a switch operated mini LED black light. It shines purple, but also functions as a very small black light in the dark. Batteries are replaceable as well. Let me know what you think!

    As always, the full set of pictures can be viewed on my facebook page:

    Thanks Dan...

    Again, it just reinforces my "no commissions" policy! Someone will get to own it soon, it will be on eBay this weekend.

    Did anyone else notice that on the back of the figure is the Decepticon logo? Awesome sculpt work!

    That looks terrific! Black could be a bit darker, but the red paintapps are stunning, and the purple lines are kickass. Though the Con symbol on his back could use some purple; it'd really make it pop.

    And the customer situation sounds...Weird. Especially because he already paid the deposit for it. o_O

    I know.... right? I literally emailed him 12 times over the past few weeks and he has just ignored me. He has been active on other boards.

    Again, just one of the many reasons I don't, and wont', take commissions. I did refund his deposit, minus my fees for supplies and the figure. Oh well his loss, some one else's gain.

    I also LOVE the idea of highlighting the 'con logo on his back in purple! Maybe a light purple wash! I'm going to do it right now!! THANKS!

    That doesn't make any sense whatsoever. o_O  Did you check your spam/unwanted folder? Maybe he did reply, but it went there?

    No problem, and yeah, a light purple wash sounds like it'll do the trick. :thumb

    Yet another awesome repaint of an awesome mold. I didn't know they made blacklights that small. I'm look forward to seeing what that decepticon symbol looks like in purple.

    He's right, spam filters tend to block things for no reason. Even if you checked your spam folder, that doesn't mean he checked his. Have you tried PM-ing your client on a message board?

    This is a great custom I really like the paint work you did in the arms to make them like the game.

    Sweet! Really like the red detail on the arms and I wasn't expecting it. You reminded me just how much I want this mould every time I see it at the shops.
